Abstract

The study used a total of one hundred and eighty day old broiler arbo acre chicks were fed with graded level of Cymbopogon citratus for 8 weeks in order to check the efficacy as alternative to Mycotoxin binder in aflatoxin contaminated feed of broiler chicken. Six dietary treatments were formulated: A (control diet) B (contaminated feed with aflatoxin) C (contaminated feed with Mycotoxin binder) D1 (contaminated feed with Cymbopogon at 0.01%) D2 (contaminated feed with Cymbopogon at 0.1%) and D3 (contaminated feed with Cymbopogon at 0.2%), respectively. Data were collected and analyse on carcass and performance characteristics with 6 birds representing each treatment in a complete randomize design values were express in percentage of body weight. Results show that performance parameters of final body weight gain feed intake feed conversion ratio are significant (p<0>
